yep, they are available again. I think the wrench fits the head just perfect. It's not super tight but not loose either.

I was using some worn out Trinity hexs, but they fit just fine.

Does anyone know where I can get Red locknuts for my losi? I've seen some guys have it around there chassis, and it gives it a finished look!

Thanks

You can find red locknuts on ebay, or fastener express.

after last weekends race all I have to says is thanks to losi for making the new belt kit. I havent raced since last october and the car felt awsome with the new black belt! however after the first few practice runs it started to fray on the right side. dont know how this happend as the drivetran was sheilded and i am about 90 percent sure that their wasnt any foreign material in the drive train when I ran. The only thing I can think of is the belt ran somehow too close to the metal pully arm and since it was new it may of had some sharp edges??? any body else experience this?

thanks

ps randy share the mod!

RandyB,

Do you have the larger flange on the pulley wheel towards the arm? I put one together wrong a few months back and got some wear on the right side of the belt.

you need to go out and buy a losi shim assortment and use three thin shims between the spur gear bearing and the tensioner arm bushing. it will space the arm away from the spur.

I'm just milling the bottom tunnel cover so that it sits resessed in the chassis a hair, rather than hanging lower than the chassis. Good for when minimum ride height is required.
